As we start to shake off the heavy layers of winter, I’m excited to see lighter, shorter pieces for spring. This Elle Daisy Dress may appear a tad prim and proper at first glance, but it’s shorter hemline and busy pattern keeps it from looking like it was thrifted from a private school uniform sale.
The dress fits small, with a tighter top and fuller mini skirt. The waistline sits higher on the body, giving the appearing of legs for days. My favourite detail is the little Peter Pan collar. Shirt collars continue to be a big trend into 2013, and this one sure is eye-catching. A simple zipper up the back means there’s no other distractions to an already-busy dress.
To keep yourself from looking too twee, pair the dress right now with bright tights, ankle booties, and a trench coat. Once the weather warms up, ditch the tights for crisp white ankle socks tucked into platform sandals, and rock the dress with a simple oversized envelope clutch and retro shades.
The Elle Daisy dress retails at Pixie Market for $51.
